'The Voice' contestant hits a soft spot with Blake
It took a lot of nerve for one gutsy contestant on "The Voice" to sing a Miranda Lambert song to Blake Shelton's back. But for her, it was personal.
"Won't take nothing but a memory from the house that built me," sang Brenna Yaeger on "The Voice."
Brenna Yaegar rocked that emotional rendition of "The House That Built Me," which was originally sung by none other than Blake's own wife.
Both Blake and Adam turned around during her audition. But what really sold them was the inspiring story behind why she chose that particular song.
"I actually have that song tattooed on my foot with all of my sisters 'cause we grew up in a log cabin," said Brenna.
Brenna confessed her last happy childhood memories come from that very cabin before her parents got divorced.
Yeah, how could you not want the girl on your team after hearing that?! Brenna eventually chose Blake as her coach, to the surprise of no one.
But as a writer for Music Times points out, she'll be facing some stiff competition out there. "This emotion rolled out of Brenna, and it showed in the passion of her performance. She was a little too hushed for a country singer, and she needs to grow in confidence."
To see how Brenna and the rest of the new "Voice" singers fare in the actual competition, you can check out new episodes Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
